Little Stint at Crymlyn Burrows (23/9/14)

September has been a decent month at Crymlyn Burrows with a steady run of birds that, without being particularly rare, I consider good records for the site. The HT yesterday evening found a juv Little Stint and a juv Curlew Sandpiper at the regular roosting spot for the smaller waders. The roost has regularly been holding c350 Sanderling and c220 Ringed Plovers for most of the month.
Other stuff here during September has included Wigeon (21st), Teal (13th & 21st), Pintail (12th & 21st), Eider (6th), Golden Plover (13th), Ruff (12th), Curlew Sandpiper (14th), Spotted Redshank (8th & 9th; found in Brunel Dock 6th by DL), 3 Guillemots (8th), 2 Common Terns (20th),  2 Lesser Whitethroats (13th), Garden Warbler (13th), 1+ Redstart (2nd to 9th) and 4+ Whinchats (4th to 21st)
